Andy Griffiths

If you’re an Australian kid of a certain age (or a parent of one), you’ll already know who Andy Griffiths is. He’s a master of comic novels, silly scenarios and kooky characters – and a man who’s more than fulfilled his mission to make reading fun for even the most reluctant of readers.

He’s stopping in to talk about the latest in his mega-bestselling Treehouse series, created with longtime partner in entertainment, illustrator Terry Denton. The ever-expanding treehouse has gained a watermelon-smashing level, a life-size snakes and ladders game (with real ladders and real snakes) and more – and there’s a BIG mystery to solve.

Be entertained and get eager to read with this consummate storyteller – and Australian icon.

For children aged 6 – 12 years. Introduction by Lachlann Carter of 100 Story Building.
